"The perfect headlamp for obstacle course racing, rogaine or an event where you are guaranteed to get wet! The Black Diamond Storm was my very first headlamp for obstacle course racing back in 2016. I have two of these lamps and they have been through some very harsh conditions. Dust, mud, fully submerged in iced water and knocked about many times on races and training runs.
Both of my lamps are still watertight and working well to this day. Highly recommended for harsh conditions or a light weight, waterproof affordable back up light in your race kit.
For long distance night racing I recommend using 2 sets of rechargeable AAA batteries (8 in total) which will get you through the night"
The Storm 400 is engineered for epics in all conditions, featuring a robust waterproof/dustproof housing and 400 lumens of bright light. With a new, compact body, the Storm 400 is more ergonomic, and the updated user interface includes a secondary switch for easy mode selection. In addition, the updated optical efficiency not only provides brighter light, but also saves battery life that you can now easily track with a six-setting, three-LED battery meter.
The Storm 400 also has three different colored night vision modes and peripheral white lighting for close-range activities like carefully re-racking for the final summit pitch in the dark. The headlamp has our Brightness Memory feature, which allows you to turn the light on and off at a chosen brightness without reverting back to the default, full power setting. The Storm 400's PowerTap Technology enables you to quickly and easily access maximum brightness with the touch of a finger.
